Plumstead is on the North Kent line and was opened 10 years after the line opened on 16 July 1859. The platforms are below road level: the gabled station buildings stand on an overbridge at the country end. Here there are sidings: the station used to be where the railway system operating within the Royal Arsenal connected with the main line.
The station is served by local bus routes 53, 96, 99, 122, 177, 180, 244, 380, 422, 469, 472, 672 & N1.
The station sits at the western end of the Ridgeway path.
The typical off-peak service from the station is:
- 2tph to Slade Green, returning to London Cannon Street via Sidcup
- 2tph to Slade Green, returning to London Cannon Street via Bexleyheath
- 2tph to Dartford
A proposal has been made in the Govia Thameslink Timetable Consulatation 2018 document for Thameslink services from Luton to travel via the North Kent Line to Rainham.
